Registration has started and already we’ve got photographers flying in from all over for Unleashed Dallas 2012! This week I spent an hour at The Aloft Hotel, where some of Unleashed will be held. We’ve received permission from this dog-friendly hotel to use their lobby and outdoor areas for shooting during the workshop and our supermodel Sophie and I immediately loved all the natural light and bright colors. I can’t wait for June!
Well, it’s hard to brag – but the dust has settled and the word is out on the first Unleashed workshop. We rocked! Part of our success was due to the great group of attendees, the terrific studio environment and just the vibe and the passion we all shared for the art of pet photography — I think we all inspired the best in each other. I know lots of great friendships were created and I feel like we all did our part to raise the bar for pet photography as an art form.
These are actual quotes from the anonymous feedback survey:
“It was invaluable! I think you could charge much more for this. You gave us information that saved us tons of money and time. Money and time that would have been spent making mistakes and bad decisions! I think the money I spent on this workshop was the best investment I could have made for my business – and is perhaps some of the best money I’ve ever spent period!”
“Unleashed was even more than I was hoping it to be! You guys were all so helpful! And you accepted us all for who we were. Whether we were beginners, or more advanced. I loved how open you all were- no secrets, you just wanted to help! I loved everything we did… I wouldn’t want one thing to change- except the length of the workshop! (longer please!) I thought the price was very fair. I had been planning on going to another pet photography workshop, and Unleashed was much, much less! I have taken so much from Unleashed. So much, I can’t even begin to cover it! I would recommend Unleashed to anyone in, or interested in, pet photography. I would even come again myself! Thank you so much!!!”
“Being part of Unleashed was an incredible experience. The insight into both the business and artisitc aspects shared by Bev, Teresa and Barbara was invaluable. The friendships formed during the workshop are providing much needed post workshop support as I try to apply what was learned”
“I love the way the three of you work together, and you have the perfect blend of being well prepared while still being willing to be flexible”
“I honestly can’t think of anything to help you improve. For me, this workshop was beyond my expectations, As a beginner photographer I have only attended one other workshop. I had such a wonderful time attending this workshop. Not only because of the tremendous talent of the three women hosting it but, from the other attendees. Everyone was so willing to answer questions, offer advice or lend a hand; and this continues to be the case even now on the unleashed private chat board on Facebook, I’m just so happy to have met all of you.”
